  • Man crosses English Channel by flyboard



    Frenchman Franky Zapata has become the first person to cross the English Channel on a jet-powered flyboard.

    Powered by a kerosene-filled backpack, the inventor made the 22-mile (35.4-km) journey in 22 minutes.

      That looks like a mighty fun frivolous piece of silliness.
      They speak in bulletpointese leftist nutjob drivel. It doesn't matter. Nothing is as great a motivator as the chance to truly be free.

          I think I read someplace that he was over 100 mph at one point.

            Averaged 60mph! That's pretty impressive.

            Pete (thinks it's slightly less impressive that it took him only 22 minutes, which seems rather low-effort)
